With Mother’s Day falling on Sunday the 10th May this year, the date is fast approaching. I am sure we are not the only ones reflecting on our special relationships with our mom’s and feeling grateful for everything they do for us. With the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, many of us are experiencing restrictions to travel and visiting our mothers on this occasion may not be a possibility. Although you may not be able to see your mom in person this year, there are still ways you can show her you care. Here at Scentered we have created the ultimate Mother’s Day 2020 gift guide to offer you some inspiration...
Gifts to send to mom’s door
Whilst you cannot give and receive gifts in person, the surprise of a thoughtful gift arriving for Mother’s Day can make our moms feel just as appreciated.
A beautiful Mother’s Day gift could be sending a bunch of her favourite flowers, delivered straight to her door. This will not only show her how much you truly know her, but it will bring life and colour into her home and put a smile on her face every time she catches a glimpse.
Make her a card
With more time on our hands, getting creative can be a positive outlet for our emotions. What better time is there than Mother’s Day to make a personalised card. This will be a fun and thoughtful way of expressing your love and showing your mom how much she means to you.
During this uncertain time, restrictions have meant our typical daily rituals and routines may have become disrupted, leaving us feeling anxious and uncertain. Gifting your mom aromatherapy this Mother’s Day can provide her with a moment of calm and reassurance in her day. Our DE-STRESS Gift Set comes with a full sized Balm and Candle that will fill her home with the relaxing scents of Chamomile, Neroli and Mandarin. Alternatively, if you want to treat your mom to a restful night's sleep, our SLEEP WELL Gift Set could be the gift you’ve been searching for. This thoughtful gift comes with a 100% silk eye pillow and our SLEEP WELL Balm. When your mum rubs the Balms essential oils onto her pulse points, and inhales deeply, she will be transported into a more relaxed mind state, and reminded of you.
Unique Mother’s Day gift ideas
If you are looking for a Mother’s Day gift that is a little more unique, we have some perfect suggestions…
A magazine subscription is the gift that keeps on giving. This will arrive at her house every month or season depending on the magazine, and will remind her of you every time. You can show her just how much you know her and get her a magazine subscription that reflects her hobbies and interests.
Subscription to a monthly box
Just like a magazine subscription, there are also subscriptions to makeup and skincare boxes. With many of us having to stay inside, now could be the perfect time to send her something that she can experiment with and look forward to each month.
Adult colouring book or calligraphy set
If you know your mom is particularly creative or is looking for a creative outlet, a colouring book or calligraphy set could be the perfect thoughtful gift. These aren’t just for children now, there are specifically created adult versions with gorgeous designs to get stuck into.
Playlist of her favourite songs
On the other hand, if your mom is a complete music lover, a playlist of her favourite songs will be sure to put a smile on her face. She can turn on your playlist and instantly be uplifted by her favourite tunes and the thoughts of you.
Presents to give mom for after lockdown ends
Whilst most businesses are currently closed for in-person trading, it can’t hurt to plan something in advance or buy her a voucher for when restrictions are lifted. There are plenty of cute ideas for you to plan a mother-daughter day and spend some quality time together. Not only will these give your mom something to look forward to, but will also help out small business during this difficult time. How about a spa day for two? Dinner at her favourite restaurant? Painting or pottery classes? Or simply a voucher for her favourite shop so she can treat herself?
This turbulent time can understandably leave us feeling distanced from the ones we love. The important thing to remember is that we will get through this together and be able to see our mom’s again soon. Taking the time to find her something special and thoughtful will make her feel appreciated and loved. For now, it is all about the little things…
